District News


Sammie Brueggemann, a senior at Washington High School, was recognized by the Board of Education for her work on the 2016-17 WHS Course Book during its monthly meeting on Wednesday, April 27.

As a senior project, Brueggemann totally resigned the course book, from cover to cover of the 74-page book.

Brueggemann received assistance from fellow WHS senior Katie Trigg, who designed the front cover.

“Sammie did the complete design, and it’s fantastic. I gave her very little guidance on how to do it, she just took off with it and did a great job,” said WHS Associate Principal Dr. Kelle McCallum.

Brueggemann said she worked on the redesign almost every day, at least one hour per day, for four months.

“Sammie is such a talented person,” McCallum said. “She’s respectable, intelligent and is liked by all of our students.”

Brueggemann plans to attend Missouri State University in Springfield and major in accounting.

See the photo below of the front cover of the WHS course book, designed by Trigg. The entire course book, designed by Brueggemann, can be seen by clicking on the attached link below.

Photos of Brueggemann presenting the course book to the Board of Education are below.

The Washington High School Scholar Bowl team has qualified for the State Meet.

After winning the Class 4 District 5 Meet on April 16, Washington earned a spot in Sectionals on April 27. 

Washington traveled to Francis Howell for the sectional meet in a best-of-three series.

WHS won two straight games, making the third game unnecessary - 530-320 and 510-320.  

Team members are Joe Stitz, Matt Chalem, Matt Dew and Cole Phinney.

According to WHS Coach David Dennis, Washington was last at a scholar bowl state tournament in 1996, and is still looking for its first state win, as that 1996 group went 0-3. No matter what, Washington is in the top 8 of Class 4. 

The state meet is Saturday, May 7, at the University of Missouri in Columbia.

The rest of the Class 4 State field is Farmington, Ladue, Hickman, Branson, Carl Junction, North Kansas City and St. Joseph Central. 

At state, there are three preliminary matches. Washington will face Hickman, Ladue and St. Joseph Central. After those three games, the best four records out of the eight teams will go on to the semifinals.  

"We will be playing with a much different lineup, as prom is the same day,” Dennis said. “I personally will be with the WMS kids at Nationals in Atlanta. Thanks in advance to my assistant coaches.”

You can follow the team, and results from all the teams, on Twitter at twitter.com/WashMoSchoBowl.
